Iya Villania returns to GMA-7; management preparing drama series for her

Iya Villania returns to GMA after signing an exclusive contract with the Kapuso Network.

The contract signing was held on October 29, 2014 at the 16th floor boardroom of GMA Network and attended by the top officers of the Network.

Present at the contract signing were Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, Senior Vice President for Entertainment TV Lilybeth G. Rasonable, Vice President for Entertainment TV Marivin T. Arayata, Vice President for Drama Redgie A. Magno, Vice President for Corporate Communications Angela Javier-Cruz, Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara and Iya’s manager Arnold Vegafria.

With the warm welcome from GMA executives, Iya feels excited about this new chapter in her life, “It’s exciting. It is going to be a huge change but I guess change is the only permanent thing in this world and it’s always nice to ruffle up the feathers kaya nakaka-excite. And, of course, it’s always nice to make new friends kaya that is what I’m definitely looking forward to.”

Meanwhile, Rasonable says she is very pleased and happy that Iya is back as a Kapuso and she also shared that the Network will give Iya good projects in order for her to shine brighter.

“Siyempre masaya kami dahil dito naman siya nagsimula, sa Click. Kapag may nagbabalik, it’s always exciting. It’s a homecoming for her and we welcome her with open arms. We’ll welcome her ng maganda sa SAS (Sunday All Stars) dahil masaya kaming lahat at itutuluy-tuloy natin yun.

"We’re cooking up a drama for her. Although you don’t see her that much in drama, but we know that she’s a good actress. Even on stage, I watched her and she should continue to hone that. Magaling siyang host, sa SAS she’ll be doing that and there are other projects we can give her for hosting.”

Iya will be part of GMA-7’s musical-variety program Sunday All Stars.
